Pre-Owned 2014 Huss and Dalton TD R Custom Adirondack Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood with Hot Hide Glue ID-9687
Huss and Dalton TD R Custom Adirondack Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood with Hot Hide Glue
Huss and Dalton's TD-R has the understated look of a traditional rosewood guitar, but has a sound that is anything but understated. This particular Huss and Dalton TD-R, built using a Red Spruce top, and Brazilian Rosewood back and sides is a great example of an amazing Dreadnought from the Virginian builders.
The topwood on this guitar is Adirondack Spruce, one of the most aggressive and powerful woods available. Red Spruce provides virtually unlimited headroom when played hard, perfect for heavy handed bluegrass players who are competing with louder string band instruments such as banjos and fiddles.
The gorgeous Brazilian rosewood offers deep, growling lows while the Adirondack top provides a fast response with rich complex overtones.
The Adirondack Braces are connected with hot hide glue. Hide Glue sets up very hard, like glass, allowing more energy transfer through the bracing. Hot Hide Glue adds responsiveness across the spectrum. This type of glue was used on the early guitars we have all fallen in love with, but later phased out due to the time required to use it, not to mention the mess it makes. The sonic benefits can't be ignored, adding not only responsiveness, but a new level of detail and clarity.
This already stunning guitar is appointed with an Ivoroid bound fingerboard, Abolone top purfling, Brazilian rosewood headstock veneer, Waverly 1129 special issue vintage oval tuning machines and MOP slotted diamond fingerboard inlay.
This Pre-Owned 2014 Huss and Dalton TD R Custom is in Excellent shape with with Very minimal to no play wear or fretwear. It has had a drop fill repair done on the side of the guitar. We have attempted to capture this in the detailed photos below.
